Top Ten Reasons to Lose the Weight

Filed under: Journey,Uncategorized — Shhhh @ 3:16 am

These were mine…

10. To be healthy overall.

9. To be a mentor of healthy choices for my family.

8. To get second looks when walking down the street.

7. To avoid diabetes.

6. To feel good about myself when I look in a mirror.

5. To have the freedom to shop in any store for clothes.

4. So I can be seen in a bathing suit and not feel shame.

3. So I can take pole dancing lessons.

2. More sex in every position possible!

And the #1 reason:

So that I can be proud on behalf of my husband when we are out together in public.

And you know what?  I have met every single one of them, and I live them every day.  I am so proud of myself.  I wrote this list when I was at 200lbs, and it didn’t seem real that I could actually do this.  I posted this on the inside of the mirror in my bathroom medicine cabinet.  Every day I see it.  I don’t READ it every day, but once in a while it catches my eye again.  And it makes me smile.

Oh, and guess who owns a dance pole.  *eyebrow wiggle*



  1. omg you do not own a pole! that is so awesome!
    love this list, and love that you were able to accomplish everything on it even more!

    • Yep yep I do! My friends husband cleans and repairs houses that are being listed for sell. He found a dance pole in one, and brought it home. He said to her “I know you won’t want it but I bet Shhh will!” LOLOL

    • Sadly, I never got to take the lessons. It was a HUGE craze in my home town when I started my journey, but alas it ended up being a fad. Now there is nowhere local for me to go to take a class. So I gots me own pole, and shake my own groove thang!
